1. What type of animal is your pet? Cats. OF COURSE !

2. Male or female? Both. Also several spays and one neuter.

3. Are they a specific breed? Yes, Russians and one Nebelung.

3. Why did you choose that specific type of pet? I realized that my hubby to be loved green eyed gray cats. SO I looked into cat breeds that fit that description. There are two Korats and Russian Blues. I decided on the Russian Blue because there was a breeder near us that had an adult available. I wanted a Nebelung as they are the long haired versions of the Russian.

5. What is your pet's name? Too many to list. But the most *infamous* cats we have are our bloggers, Alexi and Galletta.

6. How did they get their name? Alexi got her name because I wanted a Russian name for her. Alexandra is a nice girl's name and I knew Alexi was a nickname. We had already begun to call her Alexi so it fit. Galletta was name by his first mom/breeder.

7. What does your pet look like?
Alexi is lovely shorthaired blue cat with gorgeous green eyes. You can see her pic at the top of the page. Galletta is a blue cat with medium long hair. His pic is on his blog.

Support research AND honor your v-e-t !

Mombean found the above at Winn Feline Foundation website. She thought it was a really KEWL idea that you can make a donation to honor a veterinarian that has been supportive to you or your beans in time of need or sickness AND help fund research at the same time. How cool is that!!

Many of our beans hafted been sad at the loss of a beloved kith. Every week, the Cat Blogosphere news haz news of saying good bye to kittens some of whom suffered from diseases. This organization, Winn Feline Foundation, helps fight diseases in us kittens by funding research into diseases in particular, FIP and HCM. The Bria Fund helps fund research into FIP. The Ricky Fund helps fund research into HCM. Donating to these named funds is another way to fund research into these awful diseases.

Please consider giving to the Winn Feline Foundation to help fight diseases in kittehs.
